Women For Engineering: An Initiative Aiming to Break Gender Stereotypes

Women For Engineering: An Initiative Aiming to Break Gender Stereotypes

Have you ever heard about people wondering why are so many women dreaming to be engineers? Yeah, it’s weird. Egyptian Women are proving their worth by the time in every field, even the fields which some people in Egypt are seeing as a male-dominant field.

Let’s hark to their voice and message.

What is ” Women for Engineering ينفع عشان انت بنت” ?

Women for Engineering is an initiative that cares about providing exposure to the most distinguished women in Egypt, as well as spreading awareness and taking action on social issues. The Initiative started through the ASU Energy Community.

The ASU Energy Community is a student-based community that promotes the enhancement of the student’s experience through disciplinary and interdisciplinary means.

We interviewed the Co-founder of Women for Engineering Malak Hussein to know more about the initiative, and here is what she said.

We started in October 2020, firstly we were focusing on making the Students in Our College know about us and our goals. We started by an online event. But obviously COVID-19 was a significant challenge, and the environment was not helping us to achieve all of our goals.

And now, what are these goals?

We’re aiming to build a society to support Girls in the community and looking forward to providing training and workshops for Girls to support their talents and abilities

They’re mainly a team of 6 Girls: Malak Hussein, Mariam Kaiser, Andriette Essam, Monica, Sherwet Hatem, and Zeina Adel.

But surely, they need support to continue.

We’re supported by our professors, and we are really proud of that. But we need more support and a big push from our College, so that we get a better Exposure.

And she added:

We are not aiming to exclude men by our initiative, on the contrary, we really need their support as they represent a large part of our community.

What are you planning for soon?

For now, we’re depending solely on Social media. We’re planning to make interviews with Women Engineers who have succeeded to inspire the other Girls.

And for the next year, we’re planning to organize more than one event and reach all the Girls’ community to inspire them.

Partnerships are a great opportunity.

We’re looking forward to making partnerships with many entities in Egypt having the same goals and vision.

I’m sure that the leaders that will take the responsibility after me will continue what we’ve started and make larger progress towards achieving our goals.

And now, See the most Inspiring Egyptian Women Engineers.

But we cannot ignore too the Egyptian women in Tokyo Olympics 2020 and how they are inspiring role models.

The Egyptian Youth’s power has been always influential and inspiring. We’re truly wishing them the Best of Luck in achieving their goals. And those are the Egyptian girls. KEEP UP THE INSPIRATION.
